Hi, Ho to the Fair We Go!
Getting to the Minnesota State Fair is Easy with Evie!
Drive your neighborhood Evie to the Minnesota State Fair with ease this year. One-way trips are available from your home to the Saint Paul University of Minnesota Campus, Lot #104, located at 1854 Buford Ave N, 55104. Parking is free, as with all Evie trips. Find dedicated Evie Parking spaces in the Southeast corner of the lot, marked Evie Parking Only spaces. There are a total of 10 available spaces.
Enter the lot and scan the below QR code (also located on the Evie Carshare App > Insurance Card > MN State Fair Code, or in the My Perks section at https://hourcar.org/member-resources/ ). This code will give you access to enter and leave Lot #104 without additional payment. If you’d prefer a paper copy, please feel free to print the QR code below. We’ll be placing QR codes in cars as well, but it’s always nice to have a backup.
If there is a non-Evie parked in an Evie Only Parking Space, but we are still under 10 Evie vehicles in the lot, simply park in another nearby space. If there are 10 Evies in the lot and the Evie Only Parking Spaces are full, take advantage of our Evie Carshare Parking Permit allowances and park at the University of Minnesota St Paul Campus Parking Spaces at Lot 175, located at 1547 Cleveland Ave, in the Southwest corner, allowing up to three Evies. Additional parking is located throughout the neighborhood in the Home Area where it states “Residential Permit Required”, as all Evies have this permit.
As always, if you get lost or have questions, our 24/7 Member Services team is here to help at 612-343-2277.

Actively check the app and make sure there are not 10 or more cars there. If there are, park at the UMN Evie Parking Only spaces in Lot #175. If those spaces are full, not worries! All Evies are approved for neighborhood parking spaces west of Cleveland Ave, so find an on-street parking space within the Evie Home Area and enjoy the rest of your day at the Great Minnesotan Get Together!
You’ll need to find a ride back home from Metro Transit or other vendors, like Lyft/Uber/taxis.
We are actively monitoring the UMN MN State Fair location based on vehicles and trips per location. Our team is headed out as soon as we achieve 75% of space allocation to reduce vehicle stress in the area and make more parking spaces for you. Given the overall location, if the spaces are full, we encourage you to take advantage of our permit authorized spaces west of Cleveland in the neighborhood and on-campus dedicated spaces in lot #175.
